As of late March ASKJ has developed a 5 week Handle (point A) after forming the right side of a 2 year Cup.  Its Pivot Point is around the $7.50 level.  If it can break above the $7.50 level accompanied by strong volume it appears the next level of significant resistance would be around the $15 area.
